Love that course. Played at least 4 holes everyday for 27 months. Did they finally develop the houses etc? When the rough is up it’s one of the most difficult around.

Yeah, it is a great value too. The three of us got on for $50 total! Houses are mostly finished. They all look stunning!

Another day in the books. PG this morning was super fun. The backside surpassed my expectations! Quail Lodge in the afternoon was also fantastic. I think it is an underrated course. It was in pristine shape and the greens were rolling super fast (about 11-12). Beautiful course. Spanish is tomorrow, so looking forward to that.

I realize I haven't posted in this thread for a couple of days. Internet was a little spotty. We got back yesterday and I finally got all my photos uploaded so here they are!

First up was Bayonet. With the PGA Professionals Championship (which starts today), the course was in great shape. It was pretty cool having the ropes, leaderboards, and tents up — made it feel like a tour event!

Second day began with PG. Man, that back nine! It was a little foggy but still amazing. Attached File  PSX_20180617_094032.jpeg   87.09KB   7 downloadsAttached File  PSX_20180617_094624.jpeg   156.07KB   7 downloadsAttached File  PSX_20180617_094212.jpeg   107.5KB   7 downloads
After PG, we went straight to Quail Lodge. It was in amazing shape — best greens of the whole week by far. Probably the best conditioning overall. Seems like a pretty underrated course to me. It was the perfect weather for golf, too!Attached File  PSX_20180617_094817.jpeg   139.84KB   7 downloadsAttached File  PSX_20180617_095147.jpeg   97.95KB   7 downloadsAttached File  PSX_20180617_095517.jpeg   159.04KB   7 downloadsAttached File  PSX_20180617_091545.jpeg   119.9KB   7 downloadsAttached File  PSX_20180617_095350.jpeg   119.68KB   7 downloadsAttached File  PSX_20180617_095655.jpeg   77.08KB   7 downloadsAttached File  PSX_20180617_091410.jpeg   93.39KB   7 downloads
We played Spanish Bay the following day. I have to say, this was my favorite course of the week! Just a fun layout right next to the ocean. At the end, they even gave us all bag tags for free!

The last round was at Poppy Hills. Another great track. The guys in the pro shop said the conditions were almost perfect, presumably because of the US Girls Junior Am next month.

Great trip and wonderful photos. I’ll be at Poppy Hills on Friday (live 1:30 away), so good to hear about conditions. I turn 40 next year and thinking of these courses except swap Quail Lodge for Pebble and add Black Horse - or just spend that $$$ on the Open at Pebble! How about food, wine or beer? Did you make it to Alvarado Street Brewing per chance?

I'm underage so I can't help you out in the wine/beer department, but we did eat at a great Mexican restaurant in Carmel called Pescadero. Great Fajitas with fresh tortillas and several kinds of salsa. We also ate at Gianni's, which serves pizza, pasta, etc. It was pretty good. We sat next to the guys who played directly behind us at Poppy, which was funny. We also had seafood at a place on Cannery Row, but I cannot remember the name. Pretty good for the price. Have fun on Friday!

Oh how we miss PG! That muni is really a gem of a course isn't it?. I have pics from the driving range with deer literally 10 feet in front of me. I had to stop hitting and just wait for them to finish their lunch but but I didn't mind one bit. On the front 9, there was a hole (forget which) where there were literally 20 head of deer just laying around the tee box. If you ever make it back and like to go hiking, there's an old logging trail behind Poppy Hills that I used to run every day to clear my head.

A few other courses worth considering that are a little off the path but very budget-friendly are Del Monte, Monterey Pines, Rancho Canada and Laguna Seca. But if you're looking for that seaside golf experience without murdering your wallet, PG Golf Links is a must! 

 

My wife is talking about getting us US Open passes for our 10 year anniversary, Father's Day, My 40th next year (they're all relatively close). :D Under no other circumstance would I be remotely excited for my 40th birthday.. but this is a reason to rejoice.

Yeah, there were so many deer at that course! I was surprised there were so many right on the peninsula.

    Getting prepped for my annual friends golf outing in Muncie, IN. I haven't played in about 3 weeks so a little nervous. Headed to the range this evening.

    Really looking forward to hitting Gearhart Golf Links near Seaside, OR again in a few weeks. Had so much fun the first time there 2 years ago and can't wait to test myself from the Stones again!
